Unlike other reviewers, I stayed for three nights at Harwood House, using it as a base for walking in the beautiful Essex countryside with three girlfriends. For those walkers among you, Great Dunmow is on the Flitch Way walking path and there are plenty of well signed footpaths in the area. Ian and Helen were wonderful hosts and worked very... More

We stayed one night before an early flight out of Stansted. The location was great and the owners are so lovely. We arrived a bit late- 7pm and the owner still carried our bags to our rooms, gave us a run down of dinner options, and ordered a cab for us the next morning. We went for a walk through... More

We arrived ego find nice B&B House sitters who were very welcoming, they ordered a taxi to the airport (all included). On our return we had a late flight back and the owner collected us himself. We had been recommended somewhere else but they would do the late pick up. There was a huge choice for breakfast. I had a... More

Very friendly - nothing seemed too much trouble for the proprietors. They arranged a taxi to and from a friend's wedding but offered to drive me if it didn't turn up on time.Free wifi and very pleasant dining room.I preferred it to the hotels I have stayed in in Brentwood and Chelmsford. Would happily recommend to someone or stay again.... More

We used Harwood House prior to flying from Stansted. It. Is a lovely B&B, very comfortable and absolutely immaculate. The taxi service to and from airport is brilliant and incredibly efficient. Have recommended them to friends and would happily stay again. Unfortunately our early flight meant we were unable to sample breakfast, but I am sure this would be of... More
